According to the New York Times, the Pope was very blunt in one of his first interviews in six months. He said that the Church " should be a 'home for all' and not a 'small chapel' focused on doctrine, orthodoxy and a limited agenda of moral teachings."
One Catholic, Rev. James Martin, an editor-at-large of America, the Jesuit magazine in New York, was surprised by the Pope's comments. "He seems even more of a free-thinker than I thought — creative, experimental, willing to live on the margins, push boundaries back a little bit.”
